The study of the chemistry behind biological processes and the synthesis of biologically active molecules are examples of biochemistry.
  • Studies chemistry of living processes, such as cell development, breathing and digestion, and living energy changes, such as growth, aging, and death.
  • Researches methods of transferring characteristics, such as resistance to disease, from one organism to Examines chemical aspects of formation of antibodies, and researches chemistry of cells and blood corpuscles.
  • Develops and executes tests to detect disease, genetic disorders, or other abnormalities.
  • Develops and tests new drugs and medications used for commercial distribution.
  • Design and build laboratory equipment needed for special research projects.
  • Analyzes foods to determine nutritional value and effects of cooking, canning, and processing on this value.
  • Cleans, purifies, refines, and otherwise prepares pharmaceutical compounds for commercial distribution.
  • Prepares reports and recommendations based upon research outcomes.
  • Develops methods to process, store, and use food, drugs, and chemical compounds.
  • Isolates, analyzes, and identifies hormones, vitamins, allergens, minerals, and enzymes, and determines their effects on body functions.
